The Utzon Center was designed by famous architect Jørn Utzon, who is probably best-known for his phenomenal design of the Sydney Opera House. Utzon grew up in Aalborg, and the Utzon Center is considered by many to be a great tribute to the great architect. If you look at the roof of the building, you might be able to see the similarity to the Sydney Opera House, right in the centre of Aalborg. Having the reception at the Utzon Center, you get a chance to explore Aalborg’s newly renovated waterfront along with one of its finest pieces of architecture and we are delighted to offer all participants and accompanying persons a very special welcome to the city of Aalborg in these incredible surroundings.
